WELCOME


Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education events at the Virginia International Raceway. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

12th Annual Euroclassics Driver Education and Customer Appreciation Day At VIR: Join Mark Cooke of Euroclassics Porsche for this popular one-day Drivers Education (DE) event on the full course at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) near Danville, VA on Monday, October 13. Click here to see the event poster, and click here to register on-line via MotorsportReg.com. This is a great opportunity for drivers to get to know their cars, test their abilities on a real racecourse, and enjoy lots of track time. This event is open to any driver 18 and over with a valid US-issued driver's license and with any make/model of car. Please bring your license with you to registration.

Well-known driving coach Peter Krause will be our chief instructor and will be available for hire. Reserve your time now before his time slots fill up. Cost: $375 per session with a camera. Visit Peter's web site or contact him via email at peter@peterkrause.net or phone him at (919) 740-1871.

Event registration is $295. This includes a free pre-event tech inspection of your car at Euroclassics Porsche in Midlothian, VA, a free lunch at the track, and excellent goodie bags as a souvenir of your day. (Additional parts or labor that may be needed can be purchased from Euroclassics.) Pre-event tech inspections are required for all cars. Drivers may take their cars to another service facility of their choosing but will need to compensate that shop.

Drivers will be divided into three run groups based on their driving experience. No passing will be allowed in the "yellow" group for drivers who are new to the track or have limited driving time. Passing will be allowed in the two upper run groups for experienced drivers. Long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and closed-toe shoes will be required for all drivers, per VIR rules. All participants and spectators (adults and minors) must sign the appropriate insurance waivers.

The yellow group will be a relaxed driving opportunity for people who have no or limited track experience. These drivers will be able to get a taste of the track without having to be concerned about passing as they learn about themselves and their cars. Some mentors will be available at no charge to give newer drivers a few driving tips and teach them the line of the track. In this group only, no helmets will be required and VIR's roll-bar rules will not apply (so you can drive any stock Boxster). For the yellow group only, Porsche Cayennes and BMW and Mercedes-Benz SUVs will be permitted.

Drivers in the Red and White groups must wear Snell 2005 or newer helmets. Per VIR rules, Boxsters and other convertibles in the advanced groups must have roll bars that are two inches above the drivers' helmets (Broomstick Rule). Boxsters 2005 and newer are acceptable with no additional devices if the drivers' helmets are below the two-inch mark.

The Red (intermediate) and White (advanced) groups are SOLO run groups for experienced drivers with previous solo track time. Please make sure that your event history is up to date on your MotorsportsReg.com account; this helps us place drivers in the correct run group.

The paddock has been repaved since our last visit. Per VIR policies:

Asphalt—Do not pound stakes or make any holes in any asphalt surface. Do not paint any asphalt surface. Offenders will be held liable for all damages and may be ejected. VIR requests anyone refueling in the Paddock use a drip pan to catch spilled fuel. Any fuel spills on pit road must be immediately diluted with Cold Fire. If you must temporarily jack a vehicle on asphalt, you must have metal or wood under the jack and jack stands. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Be prepared for your VIR experience. Check out their policies by clicking here.

Please call Euroclassics Porsche at (804) 794-6868 to register by phone and for more information. Click here to register on-line via MotorsportReg.com.

Details will also be posted on the Euroclassics DE event page.
